The cars pass by outside
From one sign to the next
She tries to listen
Tries to care
Pretending he knows best

She's afraid of what she's done
Not knowing what it is
She prays for something
Prays for his sins
Someday she'll find rest

But the time is never right
No it's never right
To step outside her life
To find what's been lost
She'll sleep on it tonight

A voice she left behind
Tells her that there's time
She bears the burden
Blames her own sin
Hopes she'll change her mind

The pain that never hides
A reflection from inside
She conceals the message
Buries her head
Tells herself she's fine

But her eyes
They say goodbye
No, they never lie

The windows to her life
To find what's been lost
She'll sleep on it tonight

Ooh she'll sleep on it tonight

Oh she feels alive without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She comes alive
Without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She comes alive
Without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She feels alive
Without a reason
